www.indymedia.org, 22.07.2004 00:10

July 19 marked the 25th anniversary of the Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua. Despite fierce US opposition, the Sandinistas ruled Nicaragua from 1979-90, peacefully giving up power when they lost the 1990 election. They are still the major opposition party in Nicaragua. Read an interview with a New York Sandinista and the analysis of Sandinista ambassador Alejandro Bendana

Historic Victory for the Right to Protest?

NYC, 22.07.2004 00:02

It has been billed as a "historic victory for the right to protest", but what does the recent court ruling halting restrictive NYPD practices actually mean for protesters? Sure, police are barred from using 4-sided pens and generalized searches of protesters, but they can still use horses against protesters, they can still conduct searches of protesters if there is "reasonable cause"--which effectively means whatever the NYPD wants it to mean--and the mask law is still in effect.

Breaking News: It's Official, UFP&amp;J Caves. Anonymous Alternate Call Issued

NYC, 21.07.2004 19:45

(with info from the AP): Despite 75% of New Yorkers believing that United for Peace and Justice should hold its August 29th rally in Central Park, today the organization caved in to city demands to use the West Side highway.

"We need to move on, so we decided to take the high road here," said Leslie Cagan, leader of United for Peace and Justice, at a City Hall news conference.

Meanwhile, an anonymous call has been issued to go to Central Park on the morning of August 29th.

"Come to Central Park on the morning of August 29th, gather in affinity groups at a location of your choosing (see a preliminary menu below), and do your thing from there – a feeder march to the "official" protest, arts in action, a people's park picnic, whatever.

We are aware of the importance of the days of action being planned for August 30 and 31, and of all of us being able to stay in the streets for as long as possible. So we encourage people to play it as safe as possible for the morning, and to keep in mind that any gathering of over 20 people may be grounds for early roundups.
...
Another A29 is possible. We declare that all of our city will be a free speech zone that day."

RNC Watch Takes a Look at the &quot;Protest Warriors.&quot;

NYC, 21.07.2004 18:22

(Picture Caption: the Founder of "Protest Warriors.")Today, RNCWatch takes a look at the right-wing fringe group, the Protest Warriors. From RNCWatch: "Although the Protest Warriors usually make a big deal about how they have been the victims of leftist "violence," several of their recent bulletin board posts advocate carrying concealed weapons to demonstrations at the RNC. "I would bring pepper spray," writes one. "I will be utilizing my concealed weapons permit," writes another. "We should be prepared for violence," writes a third. These posts are similar to the infamous CraigsList NYC posting of more than a year ago advocating right-wing vigilanteeism at the RNC."

As the International AIDS Conference in Bangkok comes to a close, attendees are demanding improved efforts from governments across the globe. Yet many members of communities most affected by HIV/AIDS say non-profit and non-governmental organizations are harming their communities in the name of stopping the epidemic. At the forefront of the fight are sex workers, demanding the right to lead healthy lives free of infection and state-intervention reports FSRN's Darby Hickey.

Philippine troops deployed in Iraq, pulled out

www.indymedia.org, 21.07.2004 07:08

At 2 p.m. yesterday, 51 Filipino troops completely pulled out from the U.S. occupied Iraq, following the succesful anti-war campaign in the home front to save the life of Angelo dela Cruz who was held captive by the Iraqi liberation army.



According to the infos gathered by corporate medias, Angelo dela Cruz- a Filipino truck driver hostaged by Iraqi militants was released by his captors shortly after the Filipino troops pull-out. This was confirmed by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo yesterday in a press briefing, announcing that Angelo was already handed over by the Iraqi rebels to the Philippine embassy after she acceded to the rebel’s demand.



The release of Angelo and the pull-out of troops received a warm yet critical welcome from the anti-war movement in the home front against the President’s response to the hostage crisis.



“Our gratitude, however, is not reserved for President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. It was her, after all, who by supporting an illegal war and occupation put Angelo dela Cruz in harm's way. It was her who by holding the people's welfare hostage to her and the United States' interests held the life of Angelo on her hand. No: we cannot thank the President for putting aside the knife that she herself had held so close to Angelo's neck,” Iraqi Solidarity Campaign- a coalition of peace and justice groups said in a statement.

The latest assault on progressives in Urbana is a proposal to change the form of city government by adding to the City Council two members who would be elected at-large, city-wide, rather than from individual districts.

UFP&amp;J Backing Down on the Central Park? IMC Readers Debate Next Move

NYC, 20.07.2004 16:44

An article in todays New York Times gives the indication that UFP&J organizers are preparing to aquiesce to the city's demands and hold their rally on the West Side Highway. " Organizers say that they are now considering acquiescing to a Bloomberg administration proposal to rally along the West Side Highway from Chambers Street as far north as 34th Street. 'We are prepared to figure out how to make the West Side Highway work but we can't say yes until we have more conversations with them to make sure it will work,' Ms. Cagan told the Times [Full Article]

Some IMC readers are working to prepare protesters for the heat and humity of the West Side Highway. Other, however, are asserting that the Central park rally will go ahead no matter what.

" We should just announce the route we are taking and the rally point," writes one. " Another reader writes "UFPJ-there must be no giving in on this one. If you give in, you will lose tons of us. Are you prepared for people to go to central park anyway and abandon the highway march? You must fight and fight hard. Enough hand wringing bullshit. call the damm protest and do it no matter what."
